7:01 pm
michael, thank you again for
7:02 pm
joining us tonight for a very lively hour, as always. >> thank you. >> do something. make your voice known. that's all for us tonight. anderson cooper starts now. early in the war, cnn's chief medical correspondent dr. -- captions by vitac -- >> breaking news tonight. ten years after we found chemical weapons in iraq, possibly using the chemical weapons that we know he has right now. >> you're going to hear from one very brave and lucky young man tonight. michelle bhrks achman, she claims that president obama is wasting her money on his lavish lifestyle. we tracked her down and asked her to see how she responded. basically, she wouldn't stop walking or running, almost. we begin now with breaking news.
7:03 pm
news that just triggered military action by the united states in syria. the news tonight that the possib possibilitity might be doing the one thing that could trigger american military action. might be using chemical weapons. crossing a redline that president obama himself lay down. now, they have used chemical weapons, that would leave the president with a major challenge as he heads tonight to israel. now, the suggestion that kem wall weapons might have been used came just a few hours ago today from mike rogers, a high probability to believe that chemical weapons have been used. chief white house correspondent is already in israel. she joins us now by phone. so, jessica, you have senator finestein saying i think the
7:04 pm
probableties are very high and i think the white house needs to be prepared. >> anderson, white house officials say that they're still assessing the reports that chemical weapons were used. we know there will be consequences. he has said you will be held accountable. today, his chief of staff said it would be a game changer if, in fact, chemical weapons were used. now, the president has not specified what he means, exactly, when he said his regime would be held accountable. there have been reports. i think the u.s. has developed a plan for direction action against syria. but there's no indication that the president would necessarily pursue it. and let's be realistic, it's hard to imagine that the u.s.
7:05 pm
would take any direct action against syria when the president is visiting the neighborhood.
7:06 pm
>> bob is a former cia officer and he's experienced the region. fran is in the bush 43 administration. she currently sits on the exterm advisory committee. if we take senator finestein that there's a high probability that these weapons have been used, that it may well take some
7:07 pm
action. what does that action exactly look like. >> as you say, as chair of the senate intelligence committee, we have to assume she's been briefed and there's a basis for her statement. so we ought to take that pretty seriously. she also went onto say that the u.s. is able to verify that. but they'll be able to do that pretty short order. what that means, anderson, you do what you did in libya, which is only air strike using a coalition. owe're going to need some forces in the ground. there are known to be about four dozen chemical weapon sites. and that underscores the magnitude of this problem.
7:08 pm
the president presumably will want to put a coalition together. it will take a lot of people to be able to do this effectively. it will require air assets but it will also require ground forces. >> bob, obviously a lot of viewers when they hear the idea that there may be chemical weapons, a, obviously there's a lot of concern. there will be a lot of skepticism based on what happened in iraq. how does anyone know that chemical weapons have been used? how do you verify 100% that they have been used? >> there are western groups around aleppo where these weapons have been used. they'll be able to send evidence out in the next couple of days. the traces of this on the skin will be obvious. doctors will know what they're looking at. they'll figure out what kind it was. i think it was a fairly light chemical weapon, maybe chlorine. early reports are saying this. so i think we'll know pretty sure in the next two or three days. people will be taken out to turkey and the rest of it. i think diane feinstein is absolutely right. if these weapons were used we've crossed the threshold. syria is completely a mess now, chaotic. the resistance groups,
7:09 pm
opposition are broken up into little pieces. you have al qaeda there. we simply cannot let it happen that al qaeda gets these weapons or that the regime turns them loose on the cities. something is going to happen very soon. >> bob, why can't you just bomb these sites? >> they're saying they're in tai dozen sites. you can't just bomb them. they may bomb israel. as diane feinstein said, these people are desperate. the regime, more and more cities are falling in areas and as we've said all along, they will use these things and something has to happen. you also have to look at syria has become a proxy war for iran, russia, saudi arabia and turkey. everybody is pouring arms into the country. you know, the situation cannot continue as it is without running into a catastrophe with it involving chemical weapons. >> everybody is pouring arms into the country.
7:10 pm
you know, the situation cannot continue as it is. without running into a can tast ra fi when it involves chemical weapons. >> what goes on in the white house in a situation like this? particularly where the president is heading to the region. >> anderson, you can assume that the secret service would advise him not to go. >> is taking he and his entire detail through a chemical weapons drill. they were several hours of air so that they could get to a safe and clean fight. you would have taken them, while they're on the plane, through a complete drill about what to expect and what the safety and decam nation procedures would be. certainly, that's what i would have done. >> again, i just want to reach
7:11 pm
our viewers. i think the probableties are very high that we're going into some very dark times. the regime is saying that the rebels are the ones that have used chemical weapons. they're saying that the regime has used them. each size has incentive to accuse the other. but using these weapons, how do you prove who actually used them? >> that's the whole problem. we're not in touch with the regime. neither side can be blamed. but the point is, that once the chemical weapons come out. >> that's when there is no choice. it doesn't matter what it is. put a blockade on the country. don't let the artillery be deployed. you can check this from the air. you can counter it. anything to prevent, you know, especially serin from being used, would put this conflict in a whole other realm.
7:12 pm
>> they say they don't have the capableties. do you buy that? >> if you do buy that, you're worried if you put -- what you really worry about is the regime loading these chemical weapons onto a missile. we've seen them bomb inside lebanon. you can understand all of the neighbors are rightly concerned that the regime itself has the capable ility. no reason to think that the rebels do have that capability. but you worry about if they were inclined, you put it with an explosive and you get some nation of the weapon if you put it together. so there is less concern with the rebels and certainly more concern with the neighbors of the regime. >> why can't you just bomb these sites? i know there's mumt pl sites, but would that actually destroy the weapons?
7:13 pm
why do you need troops on the ground? >> well, the concern, anderson, if you talk to folks who have been involved in military planning, is that the air strike will actually, the detonation itself, will take the chemical weapon and raise it up into the air and allow it to spread and put more civilians at risk. what you want to do is minimalize fatalities and contamination. so you're better to try to cure the site i think that's why you've seen the military throughout the region. >> yeah, a very risky of ration. appreciate your expertise out there. we see the president about to take off for israel. they'll be following our coverage reporting for us from there. let us know what you think if the regime has used these weapons. what do you think the u.s. should do? let's talk about it on twitter

welcome back. we're learning just how close the jumpbt of central florida came to a massacre. they released this video showing the moment they entered the dorm room where they just kmilted suicide. once inside rngs they not only found his body, they also said they found an arsenal. guns, ammunitions and explosives. a chilling checklist that says that guy was one step away from a rampage on a massive scale. the officers were responding to
7:18 pm
a 9-1-1 call from his roommate. we're going to bring you that exclusive video in a moimt. first, a closer look at exactly what happened. >> just after mid night on monday morning, the fire alarm starts blaring inside this dormitory at the university of central florida campus. >> i pulled the fire alarm and he's got a gun out. >> when campus police arrived at the scene, they make their way
7:19 pm
to the gunman's dorm room. this might be disturbing for some to watch, but police find 30-year-olds james oliver lying dead on the floor from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. they also found that he was apparently planning a massacre. there were four homemade bombs inside of a backpack and hundreds of rounds of ammunit n ammunition. >> i don't think that you akwooir numerous magazines and that you purchased a thousand rounds of am ewe zigs and that you purchased the spsz.45 ammunition, i don't think you do that as a joke. >> scratching off items and as he went down the list. the first was to go to this bar, the mad hatter across the street from the campus. the first, get drunk, get a quip, take a shower and shave up.
7:20 pm
the note reads put on youtube and instructions to pull the alarm and the last item red. good luck and give them hell. >> the notes just lay out a time line. and that time line was go to mad hatters, drink and i will try to make that available, as well. one of the interesting things that we did find is as he did each thing, he actually skramped them off the list. and the list stopped with pull the fire aloorm. >> investigators say he was acting as a loan wolf. officials say they discovered these items online and delivered to the campus, but he never picked them up from the mail room. >> what was in the mail waiting for the deeszed were two 22 round magazines that were
7:21 pm
designed for the gsd weapon that he had. there was also a black hawk tablgt kal swing designed to fit that particular weapon. and there was also a training dvd on proper shooting and use of lasers. >> is the would-be killer's family saying anything? >> it's interesting. he was described as a loner, someone who showed aents-social behavior. and his own parents put out a short statement this afternoon saying that they wanted to be left alone. they describe their son as a loner, "loner" and showed no signs of history or violence at all. >> now only on this program, the
7:22 pm
would-be killer's roommate. >> bk., let me start with you. can you take us through what happened? you heard the fire alarm go off. you started to leave your room and then what happened? >> usually, when the fire alarm goes off in my apartment, just somebody burning something on the stove. so i just opened my door to see what was burning. i saw my roommate approximately 4 feet in front of me with an assault rifle. he just seemed like made eye contact with me. real eye to eye contact he made with his roommate may have been his last on earth. his roommate had a rifle staring
7:23 pm
>> so you guys weren't exactly friends? >> no, i lived with him -- i moved into my apartment in the beginning of the fall semester. >> no, we're not friends. he's just very anti-social. he doesn't want to know me. he doesn't want to make friends. he just keeps to himself. >> so you opened your door and you see him standing there, the rifle is down and he makes eye contact with you. then what happened? >> o he instantly raised his rifle at me. before he could get it all the way up, i just slammed the door. i was -- i was not trying to -- i was not going to let him shoot me. i slammed the door, locked it. moved away from the door in case he fired at the door. i took some cover in my room so he wouldn't, like, be able to -- the bullets wouldn't be able to penetrate anything and i just called 911. they pretty much handled it from there. >> we actually have the 911
7:24 pm
tape. you can hear the alarm going off as you're talking to the authorities. i want to play that for our viewers. >> my roommate just pulled the fire alarm and he's got a gun out. >> all right. where are you at? >> i'm in the university of central florida. like the fire alarm went off. i opened the door to see what was going on. he's there with like some sort of like gun, like large assault gun. i don't know if it's a real gun. i don't know what it is. but i just saw it, slammed my door shut and locked it. >> are you in your room now? secured in your room? >> yeah. yes. i'm in the bathroom right now. >> all right. >> i'm amazed how calm you sound. what was going through your mind? were you afraid he was going to,
7:25 pm
you know, shoot his way into the room? >> yeah. that was one of my concerns. i was definitely scared but i was -- scared but calm. i was just taking cover like in my room behind objects. initially the chest of drawers and then later when i moved to the bathroom just behind the cabinet. just so that if he did fire at the wall on the other side he wouldn't be able to hit me. that's part of the reason why i was able to, like, not panic so much. >> he actually wasn't enrolled in school for the semester because he failed to pay his tuition. did he seem angry because of that? >> i asked him why he's not enrolled in classes and he said because e he signed up too late or something which i knew that was a lie but i didn't press him too much about it. i knew he was having money problems because of the whole process with him getting evicted from the apartment. he was having trouble at work, too. i think his hours got cut recently. he wasn't making a lot of money. >> do you have any idea why he might have done this? >> i think he was just in a corner.
7:26 pm
it just made for a very solitary person that, i don't know. i guess he saw suicide as an easier way out than where he was at. >> did you hear that gunshot? >> yeah. i didn't realize it was a gunshot at the time. because i was in the bathroom and he was like two rooms over. there was a fire alarm going off. but i heard like one or two pops. later i understood that was the gunshot. >> kristy, i want to bring you in here. you have been reporting this story on campus. what's the reaction on campus to
7:27 pm
all of this? >> you know, everybody's very flustered. no one knows what to think. you know, why he would do this type of thing. so everybody's just very happy that, you know, nobody was -- else with was hurt in this. it could have been a lot worse. thank god for our hero. >> folks on campus consider bk a hero because he was able to think straight and call the authorities. >> definitely. i have several friends in tower one. they were all there at the time who could have been hurt. you know, if it wasn't for bk calling 911 and, you know, getting the police there as quick as possible. >> well, bk, it really is extraordinary how calm you were able to remain. a lot of people would have not been able to do that. thank you so much for talking to us. i'm sorry for what you have been through. kristy as well, thanks so much for being with us. >> no b problem. >> thank you, anderson. >> lucky young man. a late winter storm has new england and the upper midwest digging out again. we'll show you who got hit hardest and where the storm is heading.

when you're elected representatives, republicans, democrats or independents is speak they should to the best of their ability speak the truth. if not they should be held accountable. not for political views or governing philosophy but for making stuff up. tonight we are featuring michele bachmann. tonight she raced away from our dana bash who was trying to ask her questions about remarks michele bachmann made at the conservative political action conference over the weekend. in the statements she slammed the white house reaction during the attack that killed four americans in libya last fall. >> a war was raging in benghazi for hours and all we know is that our president went awol. [ booing ] >> while cries from american diplomats and soldiers went unanswered. >> then she shifted to government spending specifically the white house budget. >> a new book is out talking about the perks and excess of the $1.4 billion a year
7:42 pm
presidency that we are paying for. this is a lifestyle that is one of excess. now we find out that there are five chefs on air force one. there are two projectionists who operate the white house movie theater. they regularly sleep at the white house in order to be readily available in case the first family wants a really, really late show. and i don't mean to be petty here but can't they just push the play button? [ applause ] we are also the ones who are paying for someone to walk the president's dog. paying for someone to walk the president's dog. >> now a lot to talk about. keeping them honest. the benghazi killings leave room for criticism. we have been looking at a lot of facts about that. the claims of $1.4 billion in
7:43 pm
white house perks and excess, they fail on the facts in simple fairness. michele bachmann got her information from 131-page self-published book by a long-time republican lobbyist. the book provides no specific sourcing for the claims it makes. no sourcing. according to the washington post which dug into it the only scholarly work on the subject was published in 2010 by the left leaning brookings institution. it found the bush white house in 2008 cost about $1.6 billion to run. nearly $1.1 billion of which went to the secret e service and the white house chopper fleet, not perks. if congressman michele bachmann is right -- and that's a big if -- the current occupants are cheaper. as for the five chefs, five cooks would be more like it unlike on commercial flights the lion's share of meals are prepared fresh on meal. that's a lot of cooking. as for the projectionists,
7:44 pm
nothing new there either. according to the white house museum jimmy carter watched 500 films in office. and beau the dog has no designated walker. the white house gardener walk it is dog. the guy likes dogs and has walked presidential dogs for the last eight administrations. the notion that this is a uniquely extravagant president dies hard with michele bachmann. this is not the first time she's made claim about presidential spending without facts to back them up. here she is on this program several years ago. >> i think we know that just within a day or so the president of the united states will be taking a trip over to india that is expected to cost the taxpayers $200 million a day. he's taking 2,000 people with him. he'll be renting out over 870 rooms in india. these are five-star hotel rooms at the taj mahal palace hotel. this is the kind of over the top spending. it's a very small example, anderson. >> the white house is saying the idea that this is a $200 million boondogle is overstated, that
7:45 pm
the number is wildly inflated, those numbers. >> that may be what the white house is stating. but again we have never seen a trip at this level before, this level of excess. >> no one knows the cost because for security reasons they don't disclose the cost so the idea that it's $200 million is simply made up. >> these are the numbers that have been coming out in the press. >> these are the numbers that have been coming out in the press. for the record, as we discovered back then and reported the story originated in a report from the news agency press trust of india. so it's an indian paper. tear source was a provincial government official who was unnamed. one single unnamed source from an indian provincial official, how that official would allegedly know how much the president of the united states and the u.s. government was spending -- i mean, it doesn't make sense. michele bachmann made other claims that do not stand up as well. namely that a top adviser to
7:46 pm
then secretary of state clinton may be under the sway of the muslim brotherhood. that drew sharp criticism at the time. republican colleagues including john mccain called her out on it publically. we invited michele bachmann to come on the program to talk abouter her latest allegations. she declined. the invitation stands open n. the meantime dana bash tried keeping them honest and joins us. you had to chase down the congresswoman. what did she tell you? >> last time i ran after michele bachmann on one of the issues i told you the bad news is she can walk fast in heels. the good news is so can i. h this time she was moving so fast it tested my endurance. i told her i wanted to talk about her speech at cpac, about questionable accusations made about the president's lavish lifestyle. here's how it went. >> i want to ask you is that you said -- you talked about the excesses that he's engaged in, the fact that he has a dog
7:47 pm
walker which is not true. >> the big point of my speech was about benghazi. this was an absolute disaster a. >> you also made specific accusations about -- >> the secretary of state -- >> spending money that other ps also made. >> the issue is there are four americans that are dead. the secretary of state was not in conversation with the secretary of defense or with the chair of the joint chiefs of staff. >> i think that's an important point. >> she was not there. >> that's important but this is another -- >> this is the president of the united states didn't care about those four americans and they were killed. that's the point. >> if you -- >> we have to focus. >> if you want to focus then why did you bring up the other things. >> dog handlers. four americans killed? >> congresswoman you brought it up. >> these americans. >> you brought it up.
7:48 pm
>> to be fair, she doesn't always answer my questions but she does usually smile and is polite. this was a bit out of character for her. >> what's e amazing about the quote is she tried to turn it against you as if, how dare you bring up a dog walker, something so petty when because of the horror of what happened in benghazi she's the one who brought up the dog walker and the projectionists. she made the allegations and now she's saying when you ask her about it, she's trying to make you seem like an irresponsible reporter for daring to ask her about that. >> yes, she did. it takes a lot to make me speechless. i was speechless. that's not the response that i expected from her. but, you know, i have to tell you. i checked in with people who know how she operates, people who work with her on the inside. they weren't surprised about this in the big picture for many reasons. primarily the name of the game at the cpac convention which draws conservative activists is to be provocative. she knew talking about presidential dog walkers, cooks and projection operators would
